Fieldbus Technology Adds Support to Flowmeters

Emerson Process Management announces FOUNDATION fieldbus I/O communications options for Brooks Instrument thermal mass flow meters, mass flow controllers, and pressure controllers. FOUNDATION fieldbus is in growing in demand for the life sciences, chemical, petrochemical, and process industries.

FOUNDATION fieldbus is an all-digital, two-way communications technology for plant instrumentation. It enables devices to support operations and maintenance through expanded access to diagnostics and other digital information. Other benefits include lower engineering and installation costs and optional device-based control-in-the-field.

The FOUNDATION fieldbus implementation in Brooks devices provides customers many diagnostic features including:

  • Zero drift diagnostic
  • Valve spring life detection
  • Reverse and no flow conditions detection
  • Calibration due reminder

The FOUNDATION fieldbus option is offered on the Brooks Instrument SLA5800 Series standard elastomer sealed mass flow meters, controllers, and pressure controllers, and the SLAMf Series IP65 / NEMA4X weather proof mass flow meters and controllers.
